Seeing loud and energetic pieces pull up on gleaming metal trains is a rare sight in the US nowadays. While painting trains is a concept born in The Bronx, these days it’s more ubiquitous in Europe and other countries outside the States. There are some heads still putting in low-key work here in the States, but most writers keep their flicks close and away from prying public eyes, since laws can be draconian and repercussions severe. Occasionally people post their own work online, but generally the scene is kept pretty quiet.
The Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop festival. Since 2005, the event has grown from a small, humble event into one the most respected celebrations of Hip Hop culture on the east coast. At the twilight of every summer, aerosol artists from far and wide converge to adorn the walls of Terracycle INC with their signature masterpieces, while local and regionally known emcees, bands, and DJs provide the soundtrack for the days festivities. This event is free and open to the public. Come and share the excitement! Drone footage graciously provided by Seahage

We originally planned to do one wall but we decided on doing two walls both gaming themed. The … Continue reading Pac Man Game Room→

Although the death of Fidel Castro will not bring any big changes for the Cuban people, it is the end of his infamous legacy. One that oppressed and killed anyone that dared to even think about getting in his way of ahead of his agenda. We have a long way to go before the island is liberated, but we are one step closer. ¡Que viva Cuba libre!
Damn, another childhood staple taken away this year. I just watched Star Wars Rogue One and it ends with a short cameo by Princess Leia. As I am walking out of the theater I hear of the passing of Carrie Fisher. Sad moment. In any case, I had to do a little drawing to honor a character (and the actress that brought her to life) that was such a big part of my youth. Rest in peace.
I was a contestant in El Jimador’s Art Brawl, an event sponsored by El Jimador tequila where six artists battle it out for prizes. I was fortunate enough to win 2nd place behind Dinkc from Brooklyn. Had a great time hanging with old friends and making some new ones. Big shout out to all the other artists and everyone who showed up and threw a few votes my way. Here are a few pics from the event. But before I do, just a few more shout outs!
